                Al Gore.  Al Gore. 

            This week’s Redux is from Alan Watt’s July 27, 2007 blurb, “Medieval Feudal Collective to Capitalist Monopolist.  The Dilemma of Individualism in Stormy Seas.”  Alan only said “Al Gore” twice in the first minute of this talk, but I still felt compelled to write about the Al-le-gory.   

            Alan didn’t include news links with this blurb, but if you search for articles from July 2007 featuring Al Gore, quite a few pop up, because that was the month of his big “benefit” event, Live Earth, featuring more than one hundred fifty musical acts performing at nearly a dozen locations around the world.  Gore had been a public figure for his entire adult life.  He was the vice president under President Bill Clinton for both of his terms and was the Democratic nominee for president in the 2000 elections, which he lost to George W. Bush in a supposedly close election.  He had been mocked by the press for his exaggerated claims about his involvement with the creation of the internet, his wife Tipper was the butt of endless jokes for her campaign in the 1980s to encourage the music industry to label albums advising of sexually explicit or drug-themed lyrics.  But it was Gore’s role as the political face of “climate change” and his 2006 award-winning documentary, An Inconvenient Truth, which turned him into the darling of the glamorous crowd.  Rockers and movie stars.

            I’ve been hearing about Al Gore for literally all my adult life, and I’m bored.  I want new villains.  Zuckerberg, Bezos and Musk (who gets to be both “black hat” and “white hat” depending on who the audience is,) Fauci, Gates and Schwab have grown tiresome.  But Gore?  Really?  Yes, because it’s September 2023, and sixteen years have passed since this blurb, and Alan’s opening lines could have been delivered this week.  Alan said, “All over Canada and the States and parts of Europe, we've been having the odd weather that had to happen to match the global warming scam that's going on…and everyone of course is meant to talk about it, because the media's all talking about it and Al Gore is "Goring" on about it, because that's his job. That's what he was groomed to do.”

          In July of this year, the New York Times published an article about Gore entitled “Al Gore on Extreme Heat and the Fight Against Fossil Fuels.”  The author says that it has been seventeen years since An Inconvenient Truth, and Gore has been shouting from the rooftops since then about the risks of global warming, but weather events of the past few weeks have him even more worried.  “Every night on the TV news is like taking a nature hike through the Book of Revelation,” Gore said.  He then went on to put much blame on big oil and fossil fuel companies who have dragged their feet, not done enough and whose executives are involved with the Conference of the Parties to the United Nations climate convention (COP) and end up with “greenwashing” strategies.  That’s rich!   Alan said in this talk, “Al Gore, the man from the big oil companies, who is related to some very famous people from the past involved in world management.”

            Alan Watt has mentioned many times, the relationship that Gore’s father had with Armand Hammer who built Occidental Petroleum.  Hammer said that he had Al Gore, Sr., “in my back pocket.”  Please read the article that the Center for Public Integrity published in 2000, “How the Gores, father and son, helped their patron Occidental Petroleum.”  This gives an overview of Occidental Petroleum in Libya, an interesting arrangement between Gore Sr., then Gore Jr. with Hammer over Tennessee land and mining rights to zinc (not the most essential “clean energy” mineral, but necessary for wind energy.)  Most importantly, is Al Gore’s involvement in the sale of public lands to Occidental Petroleum; land coveted by Big Oil, but wisely protected by the U.S. government for decades, until Gore.  According to the Center for Public Integrity, “It was the largest privatization of federal property in U.S. history, one that tripled Occidental’s U.S. oil reserves overnight. During the months after the sale, Occidental tripled the amount of natural gas extracted from the field.”

            This is what Wikipedia says about Armand Hammer’s father, Julius, who emigrated from what was then the Russian Empire (Odessa then, now Ukraine) in 1875.  “After the Russian Revolution, a part of the Socialist Labor Party of America (SLP) under Julius' leadership split off to become a founding element of the Communist Party USA which supported Vladimir Lenin and Bolshevism.  As administrative head, commercial attaché, and financial advisor of the Ludwig Martens-led Russian Soviet Government Bureau, Julius Hammer was assigned to generate support for the Russian Soviet Government Bureau and funded the Soviet Russian Bureau by money laundering the proceeds from illegal sales of smuggled diamonds through his company Allied Drug, while his Allied Drug partner, Abraham A. Heller, headed the Soviet Bureau's commercial department.  Julius Hammer and Heller traveled extensively across the United States both to stop the embargo of Soviet Russia and to increase United States trade with Soviet Russia along with improving the image of Bolsheviks who were overwhelmingly despised by American socialists.  During the United States embargo against Soviet Russia, Julius Hammer used his Allied Drug and Chemical as a front to smuggle items and materials between the United States and Soviet Russia through Riga.”

            Armand Hammer was called “Lenin’s chosen capitalist” by the press because the two of them were so close.  Brezhnev gave Hammer a luxury apartment in Moscow.  Late in his life, Armand confirmed that he had been named for the famous “arm and hammer” symbol of industry and socialism (and part of the “hammer and sickle” of communism.)

            One other name to consider that ties in with Alan’s comment that Gore was “related to some very famous people from the past involved in world management” is his former son-in-law, Andrew Schiff. 

            Karenna Gore was the Youth Outreach Chair on her father's 2000 presidential campaign.  She was married to Andrew Schiff from 1997 to 2011.  Schiff had been a primary care physician but by the time Karenna entered the political spotlight, he was working as a biotechnology fund manager.  Andrew is the great-great grandson of Jacob Schiff, the head of the New York investment firm Kuhn, Loeb and Company. 

            Appendix II of Antony C. Sutton’s book Wall Street and The Bolshevik Revolution is entitled THE JEWISH-CONSPIRACY THEORY OF THE BOLSHEVIK REVOLUTION.  He cites a document on file with the State Department (Decimal File 861.00/5339) that reads, “Jacob Schiff in fact made a public announcement and it was due to his financial influence that the Russian revolution was successfully accomplished and in the Spring 1917 Jacob Schiff started to finance Trotsky, a Jew, for the purpose of accomplishing a social revolution in Russia.”   A British intelligence document makes the accusation that letters have passed between Jewish leaders that give evidence that Bolshevism is an international movement controlled by Jews.  Sutton said, “None of the above statements can be supported with hard empirical evidence.”  He went on to write that if British intelligence had intercepted such letters, then supplying them would certainly provide support for what was presently an unsubstantiated hypothesis.

             Sutton also quotes from a seldom-cited piece that Winston Churchill wrote in 1920 for the London Illustrated Sunday Herald entitled “Zionism Versus Bolshevism,” and said that assertions Churchill makes about “international Jews” are contrary to fact.  What Sutton is addressing in Appendix II are claims that circulated (and still do) that there was a worldwide Jewish conspiracy for “world domination.”  Sutton writes, “There is no concrete evidence that Jews were involved in the Bolshevik Revolution because they were Jewish.”  (Emphasis Sutton’s.)

            In Kenneth Ackerman’s book Trotsky in New York 1917: A Radical on the Eve of Revolution, he addresses what is known as the Jewish Plot and writes that Schiff had openly used his wealth to pressure Russia into changing its anti-Semitic polices…The suggestion of a link between Schiff and Trotsky came directly from the United States government — specifically, its Military Intelligence Division (MID)…and that anti-Semitic slurs and connections originated from the [U.S.] government (and following Sutton’s work, anti-Semitic slurs could be said to originate from British intelligence.  Assertions made; documentation not supplied…)  Ackerman writes that while Schiff actively participated in the overthrow of the Czar because of his anti-Semitic policies, he supported the Kerensky government and not the Bolshevists.

            Kerensky fled Russia after the October Revolution of 1917 and settled in New York City, but he spent much of his time in California at Stanford University’s Hoover Institute.  He died in 1970.  Antony Sutton moved with his family from England to California in 1957.  He had a research fellowship at Stanford University’s Hoover Institute from 1968 to 1973.  I don’t know if the two of them were acquainted, or if Sutton’s interpretation of the State Department files on Schiff was colored by any relationships or purely the result of his own research.  Wall Street and The Bolshevik Revolution is an excellent book; Appendix II is thought-provoking.

            Stacks of books have been written about Czar Nicholas, his autocratic rule, the suppression of the 1905 Russian Revolution, Bloody Sunday, Rasputin and anti-Jewish pogroms.  In 1981, the Russian Orthodox Church Abroad (ROCA) canonized the Czar, his wife and all of their children as martyrs and now Nicholas II is also known as Saint Nicholas the Passion-Bearer.  These are layered and complex pieces of His-Story, but the murders of Czar Nicholas and his entire family, the Romanov dynasty, is one of the more horrific entries in that history.

            When we broaden and deepen our understanding of historical events and continue to follow this ancient priesthood further back through time, we find its stamp on events that predate the groups we can name and blame today.  In this talk, Alan said, “Always beware of those who are well funded and claim to be there to free you and speak for you, because if you give authority to them, you'll see the same repetitions that other large groups have seen in history. The utopia turns into a horror show, even for those followers who helped bring it about. Individuality is something to be sought after and to be worked on. It takes a deep understanding of the past, but more importantly, it takes a deeper understanding of yourself.”

            I stay out of ghettos, Jewish or otherwise.


            What is not disputed is that on March 23, 1917, a mass meeting was held at Carnegie Hall, New York City, to celebrate the abdication of Nicolas II, which meant the overthrow of Tsarist rule in Russia. Thousands of socialists, Marxists, nihilists and anarchists attended to cheer the event. The following day the New York Times gave the event front page coverage, and a telegram from Jacob Schiff, which was read to the Carnegie Hall audience, was featured on page two.  There are microfilm images of the March 24, 1917 edition of the New York Times available for paid subscribers.  I have re-typed some pertinent passages of that article: 

            “An authority on Russian affairs, George Kennan, told of how a movement by the Society of the Friends of Russian Freedom, financed by Jacob H. Schiff, had at the time of the Russo-Japanese war [1904-1905] spread among 50,000 Russian officers and men in Japanese prison camps the gospel of the Russian revolutionists. ‘And,’ said Mr. Kennan, ‘we know how the army helped the Duma in the bloodless revolution that made the new Russia last week.’

            Mr. Kennan said that during the Japanese-Russian war he was in Tokio (sic) and he was permitted to make visits among the 12,000 Russian prisoners in Japanese hands at the end of the first year of the war.  He told how they had asked him to give them something to read, and he had conceived the idea of putting revolutionary propaganda into the Russian Army.  The Japanese authorities favored it and gave him permission.  Later he sent to America for all the Russian revolutionary literature to be had... ‘The movement was financed by a New York banker you all know and love,’ he said, referring to Mr. Schiff, ‘and soon we received a ton and a half of Russian revolutionary propaganda.  At the end of the war, 50,000 Russian officers and men went back to their country ardent revolutionists.  The Friends of Russian Freedom had sowed 50,000 seeds of liberty in 100 Russian regiments.  I do not know how many of those officers and men were in the Petrograd fortress last week, but we do know what part the army took in the revolution.’  

[Jacob Schiff was unable to attend the celebration, but this is part of the telegram he sent which was read aloud to the audience by Mr. Kennan]:

            ‘Will you say for me to those present at tonight's meeting how deeply I regret my inability to celebrate with the Friends of Russian Freedom the actual reward of what we had hoped and striven for these long years!’ -- Jacob Schiff

            The Mayor of New York said, ‘America, the great democracy, is proud tonight because democracy in Russia has supplanted the greatest oligarchy that remained on the face of the earth.’

[President Woodrow Wilson also sent a telegram to be read.]:

            ‘The American Ambassador in Petrograd, acting under instructions from this Government, formally recognized the new Government of Russia.  By this act the United States has expressed its confidence in the success of and its natural sympathy with popular government.’ -- Woodrow Wilson

            Vladimir Resnikoff, the blind Russian baritone, sang a number of folk songs.”  Because what kind of celebration would it be without a blind Russian baritone? 


            I don’t know what Andrew Schiff is up to since his marriage to Gore’s daughter ended.  They have three children together who are now mostly grown.

            Karenna Gore is the founder and executive director of the Center for Earth Ethics at Union Theological Seminary.  “The Center for Earth Ethics works at the intersection of values, spirit, education, and civic engagement.  CEE encourages necessary changes in our culture and public policy, cultivates a more expansive and inclusive public consciousness, and promotes values that prioritize the well-being of all people and our planet.”  Blah, blah, blah, blah.

            She is on the board of Riverkeeper, an environmental organization under the umbrella of Waterkeeper Alliance, a worldwide network of environmental organizations founded by Robert F. Kennedy in 1999.  I expect to see more from Ms. Gore in the future.  She’s a player, by birth and breeding.


            In 2004, Al Gore started Generation Investment Management LLP (Generation IM) a financial services and investment management firm with Goldman Sachs' Asset Management head David Blood, its focus on “sustainable investments.”  Get it?  Blood and Gore.  CapiCommiFasci is a thing.  Big money and public-private ventures delivering communism for the proletariat.  There is always a “bloody” period, massive loss of life.  Look around!  Arm and Hammer, Blood and Gore.

            Still, when it occurred to me to write about Al Gore, I didn’t have a “way in” to something fresh.  I almost walked away in search of a different subject, until I happened upon an article about Emma Watson.  An English actress, Watson was appointed in 2014 to be the UN Women Goodwill Ambassador, and in that position helped launch HeForShe, which advocates gender equality.  There she was meeting Al Gore, in an outfit that warrants description.  She wore a green and cream skirt from a fabric well-suited for curtains or covering a sofa.  She bragged that it was “handmade in London using leftover fabrics consisting of 62% recycled yarn that was locally sourced, woven and printed in Italy.”  The top of the outfit was described as a “crop top.”  Her belly was exposed as was half her black brassiere.  Her Instagram fans loved it.  “Emma, never change, girl!”  “Love it!”  There she was smiling at Al Gore, her hero.  She shared an Instagram message from @algore.  “Mother Nature is telling us what the truth is about this crisis. I mean, it's crazy what's going on.  Every night on the TV news is like a nature hike through the Book of Revelation.

            I had just read that quote from a July 2023 interview of Al Gore by the New York Times, yet there he was in an October 2021 article about his meeting with Ms. Watson, saying the same thing.  Like it was fresh and spontaneous, unscripted, true.

            Over the years, Alan has commented several times, “The Book of Revelation.  Prophecy or a business plan?

            After reading the latest from Al Gore in the New York Times, I looked around at what other “scary scenarios” were in the news.  I found this headline from Science Daily dated August 29, 2023, “Extreme weather events linked to increased child marriage.”  The introduction to the study stated, “Researchers at The Ohio State University conducted a systematic review of 20 studies connecting droughts, floods and other extreme weather events to increases in child, early and forced marriages in low- and middle-income countries.”  How low can they go, I asked myself?  Pretty low.  This is a recycled “study” as it turns out.  You’ll find a handful of headlines going back several years which claim to link climate change to child marriage.

            In this talk, Alan said, “We become cynical in the system we live in because we suspect we're being fooled all the time; and because of that, we've become cynical with each other. This is meant to paralyze the ability to think for yourselves. It was discussed in higher circles a long time ago that they would do this (and used these techniques to do so) and we've been born into this system where we're taught not to trust ourselves. People are addicted to television talk-shows and they don’t realize the superstars that they're presented with are just actors and a whole team of staff put that one-hour show together. It's also meant to bring you what you think is your conclusion on a particular topic. It's also meant to show you how big and complex and scary this world is, and how insignificant you are. The same return the clock going back to the Medieval days, when you were just a little creation in the great scheme of things which was beyond your understanding, and you left everything to the priests and the aristocracies, nobilities, kings and queens. It's the same thing.

            See what’s in front of you but keeping looking.  Otherwise, you’ll get stuck in a ghetto, custom-made for you.  Full of monsters, and villains to hate or be bored by.
